The Kansas City Chiefs have had one glaring hole in their defense so far, inside linebacker. The spot next to Derrick Johnson has been wide open through free agency and some were wondering if the Chiefs would use a draft pick on that spot in the upcoming NFL draft.

The last couple of days seems to indicate the Chiefs are not to impressed with what they think they can get their hands on at the ILB position in the draft.

On Friday the Chiefs announced the signing of linebacker Zac Diles, and Saturday they announced the signing of linebacker Akeem Jordan to a one year deal.

Jordan, a former Philadelphia Eagle, visited the Chiefs on Friday after visiting with the Bengals earlier this week. Even though he had more upcoming visits with other teams Jordan decided that KC was the best fit for him.

Jordan’s contract is for one year for the minimum salary and includes a $20,000 signing bonus.

In six NFL seasons Jordan has recorded one sack, two interceptions, two forced fumbles, seven pass defensed, and 262 tackles. Last year he started seven games for the Eagles but played in 14, and had two forced fumbles and 44 tackles.
